Open Access Repositories: Launch of COAR Repository Observatory
New from the Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR):
The new COAR Task Force “Repository Observatory” (RO) [is now live] on the COAR website.
The aim of this project will be the identification of trends and future scenarios in the context of the use of repositories in research and education as well as to help Open Access (OA) repositories to anticipate and respond to the constant state of rapid evolution. Besides interviews with representatives of the OA Repositories Community, new projects and a series of COAR members and partner institutions profiles will be presented. In the “readings” section you will find interesting articles and reports with a visionary and strategic focus.
